NWR: "The life of a pirate has long been romanticized in popular culture. Even in the twilight of the Age of Discovery, the idea of a band of rogues answering to no law but their own had a certain appeal. Despite this, there aren't that many video games that capture this profession. One of the best was the 2004 strategy/action/adventure hybrid, Sid Meier's Pirates for PC. I loved Pirates! for its light-hearted take on the subject and have played it extensively. It is a great pick up and play title. After being ported to every platform imaginable, Pirates! finally made its way to Wii."
